Ohio’s Attack Attack! have announced that after six years and many lineups they will be calling it a day in the coming months.
Announced via a post on Facebook around 3pm (EST) today, the end of Attack Attack! will come following the band’s headlining run on the ironically named “Back In Action” tour. You can read a message posted by the band below:
Well everyone, it’s been a wild ride for Attack Attack, but I think it’s about time Whiting and I take some time to write this note.
We want to start by thanking every single one of you that has ever come out to a show, bought a shirt, gotten in a fight over crabcore, or spent the time to send us notes online. We have been insanely blessed to be able to do what we have done with AA and we think it’s time that we wrap up this chapter in our lives.
Yes, this means exactly what you think it means. The Back in Action Tour will be Attack Attack’s final and most ironic tour.
After 6 long years of playing in garages, VFW halls, clubs, open air festivals, and everything in-between. We’ve decided it is time to lay AA down for good.
You are all beautiful, wonderful people, and we want you to know that we deeply appreciate everything you have done for us.
We are sad to lay Attack Attack to rest, but are very excited for what is next in this new chapter of our lives.
Attack Attack! rose to prominence with Austin Carlile as their frontman. Click below to view the video that started it all:
